Sorry for my absence from blogging, but I have been blind sided by recent events. Very sadly, our beloved little cat Morris was knocked over and killed just two days before my birthday. I can't begin to tell you how sad I was, and still am. He was only 15 months old and such a lovely little character, not a lap cat but loving and funny in his own little ways. I miss him terribly.
Also, that same week, my Nanna was taken into hospital again, and unfortunately, she isn't doing too well.
So, with the recent events, my birthday this year was a little subdued to say the least, but as it was on Good Friday, the whole family was home, so we visited Bath for the day. The sun was shining, we had lunch at Jamie Oliver's Italian and did have a lovely day despite everything.
Alex made me some Happy Birthday cupcakes which were delicious:
and Hayden bought me the lovely star cup cake stand! Thanks you two, love you!
On Easter Sunday, we went to my Mum's and all my family came for a birthday/Easter/30th wedding anniversary celebration. It was a lovely day, and Alex got some great family shots:
I struggled to make a 30th wedding anniversary card (pearl), but in the end went with pearlised papers and as many pearly bits and embellishments as I could manage(!):
I think they liked it, hope so anyway!
Hoping to muster up some crafting mojo again this week, as I urgently need to make a male 21st birthday card (groan) and Hayden's birthday card (another male card, groan)!
